Operating System Version: Win XP sp1
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model: KC IRXpress USB-IrDA adapter
Error Messages:

This is my second question which is somewhat related to the question I asked a few
days back.
I uninstalled KC IRXpress usb-irda driver from the device manager panel, then  after
some time restored my computer to a time when the usb-irda was still installed.  

Then I tried to install usb-irda driver  again but then I got some problems. After
I ran setup from the cd and after setup is finished, restarted the computer. Then
after it has restarted,  plugged in the usb-irda adapter to the host controllerof
the pc as said  in the manual. The "found new hardware wizard" did not appear (Windows
Xp is suppose to find the new hardware and you must select "install software automatically"
according to the manual.).

But the IRXpress usb infrared device is listed in the device manager. Also, the 'Wireless
link' icon in the control panel does not work when clicked. The usb-irda device also
dosent seem to communicate properly with my mobile phone. Any help n this matter
will be highly appreciated.

Hi Paolo,

I think the best solution is to uninstall the USB-IrDA adapter from your device manager and remove any other drivers and programs associated with it. Then restart your computer. It should be gone from the deivce manager. Now reconnect the adapter to your USB port and it should start the "Found new hardware wizard". Only do this if you have the disks for the adapter. Hope this solves your problem, if not post back and I'll try and work out another way to fix it.
